        The Dramatic Works

      London, the Nonesuch Press,, 1931–2. In six volumes. Edited by Montague Summers. 6 volumes, large octavo. Near-contemporary red half morocco, spines gilt-lettered in two compartments, others gilt with floral sprays, dotted rules and central ornaments, red cloth sides, top edges gilt, others uncut. Spines very lightly sunned, a little foxing to deckle edges, still a fine set. First Edition thus, number 159 of 750 standard sets (another 50 being printed on Van Gelder paper), one of a series of fine editions of Restoration dramatists done by the eccentric bibliographer Montague Summers. "These handsome books made available for the first time the substance of a period of English drama formerly neglected and dismissed by such critics as Macaulay as unmeritable and indecent. Summers's 'Introductions' may well be the finest things he ever wrote, being in Edmund Gosse's words, 'astonishingly full of marrowy information'" (ODNB).

        The European Caravan

      New York: Brewer, Warren & Putnam,, 1931. An Anthology of the New Spirit in European Literature. Compiled and Edited by Samuel Putnam, Maida Castelhun Darnton, George Reavey, and J. Bronowski.

Light partial tanning and a few spots to endpapers, contents faintly toned. Cloth bright and fresh, an excellent copy in the jacket with tanned spine panel and a closed tear to the upper panel.

The venture was never fully realized and perhaps its lasting legacy will prove to have been as Beckett's first appearance in a US publication.

Nahezu lückenlose Sammlung aller Erstausgaben mit den seltenen ersten Veröffentlichungen in den USA, den großen Romanen der 50er Jahre nach Heyms Rückkehr au

      diverse Verlage, 1931 - Insgesamt gut bis sehr gut erhaltene Sammlung mit normalen Gebrauchsspuren. Die meisten Bände mit Exlibris des Vorbesitzers, einige mit Bleistiftanstreichungen, wenige mit Stempeln. Stefan Heym zählte unbenommen zu den politisch einflussreichsten Schriftstellern der Nachkriegszeit. 1913 unter dem Namen Helmut Flieg im sächsischen Chemnitz geboren, wurde er beriets 1931 als junger Antifaschist wegen der Veröffentlichung eines Gedichts in der dortigen "Volksstimme" der Schule verwiesen. Er beendete die Schulzeit in Berlin und emigrierte 1933 nach Prag, zu seinem eigenen Schutz - und dem seiner Familie - vor den Nationalsozialisten lebte er fortan unter dem Pseudonym Stefan Heym. 1935 wanderte er in die USA aus. Nach seinem Studium arbeitete er dort als Journalist und Schriftsteller und kam als Nachrichtenoffizier der US Army wieder nach Deutschland. Endgültig verließ er erst während der McCarthy-Ära die USA und lebte seit 1953 in der DDR. Seine künstlerische und politische Entwicklung gleicht der vieler DDR-Schriftsteller seiner Generation: Zunächst Verfechter der sozialistischen Idee, resignierte auch Heym bereits Mitte der 1950er jahre an der DDR-Kulturpolitik: Sein Buch "Der Tag X" (später: Fünf Tage im Juni) durfte nicht erscheinen, ein Schicksal, das in den Folgejahren viele seiner Werke traf, die deshalb zunächst in westdeutschen Verlagen veröffentlicht wurden. Das kurzfristige "Tauwetter" Anfang der 1970er Jahre endete auch für ihn spätestens mit der Ausbürgerung von Wolf Biermann - Heym zählte zu den Erstunterzeichnern der Protesterklärung und wurde 1979 aus dem Schriftstellerverband der DDR ausgeschlossen. Auf der berühmten November-Demonstration von DDR-Künstlern 1989 war er einer der Hauptredner. 1994 errang er (für viele überraschend als Kandidat der SED-Nachfolgepartei PDS) ein Bundestagsmandat und wurde Alterspräsident des deutschen Parlaments. Stefan Heym starb 2001 während einer Israelreise.

        Windfall: A Novel About Ten Million Dollars

      New York: The John Day Company. 1931. First. First edition. Fine in an externally very good plus dustwrapper with several internal brown paper tape repairs, and some overall soiling. At the whim of a dying Croesus, ten people, including a prostitute, a prizefighter, a bum, a stockbroker, a stenographer, etc., are each given a million dollars. Basis for the 1932 film If I Had a Million. The film was broken into segments following the fortunes of the various newly minted millionaires, each segment with its own director. The directors included James Cruze, H. Bruce Humberstone, Ernst Lubitsch, Norman Z. McLeod, Lothar Mendes, Stephen Roberts, William A. Seiter, and Norman Taurog. Appearing in the film (most as the recipients of windfalls) were Gary Cooper, Charles Laughton, George Raft, Jack Oakie, Richard Bennett, Charles Ruggles, Alison Skipworth, and W.C. Fields. The Fields and Skipworth segment, where they use their new found fortune to buy a fleet of cars and hire drivers to run road hogs off the road, is a comic classic. The premise also inspired the popular 1950s television series The Millionaire. .

        L'Exposition Coloniale de Paris

      Librairie des Arts Décoratifs, Paris 1931 - First edition, first printing. Unbound sheets collated in a folio with gold paper-covered boards with title printed in black on cover, with black woven ribbon tie. Introduction (in French) by Joseph Trillat. Includes a list of plates. Unpaginated, with 54 collotype plates (11-3/8 x 8 inches) from photographs by A. Chevojon, printed by A. Calavas, Paris (with interleaving tissue sheets protecting the individual plates). 13-1/4 x 10-1/4 inches. CONDITION: Near Fine (some rubbing to the outer folio, all plates Fine). From an essay by Patricia A. Morton: "L'Exposition Coloniale Internationale de Paris feted the accomplishments of colonialism from May 6 to November 15, 1931. this was the last international world's fair exclusively devoted to the celebration of international colonialism. France hosted the Colonial Exposition - joined by Portugal, the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Italy, and the United States - to demonstrate its colonial puissance and to stimulate the French public's interest in its colonial empire. The only colonial power absent from Paris was Britain, which, although invited to the Colonial Exposition, had staged its own imperial extravaganza in 1924-25 and lacked both the resources and interest in participating in a celebration of French colonialism. Germany no longer possessed a colonial empire, having been stripped of its colonies after World War I, and Japan was not yet recognized as a colonial power. The Colonial Exposition attracted a huge audience (there were 33 million entries into the exposition) from France and abroad and generated an overwhelmingly positive critical response." This publication features 54 images of the colonized people and architectural pavilions assembled for the exhibition, including those from Africa, Southeast Asia, Oceania and the Middle East. According to Arthur Chandler: "The United States was the only non-European country exhibiting as a colonial power. The American building at the exposition [Plate 51 in this publication] was a close replica of George Washington's house at Mount Vernon, complete with the bedroom set aside for Lafayette --a gesture that pleased the French hosts enormously. The inherent irony of the American exhibit --that it was housed in a building of the man who led the fight against colonial tyranny in the United States --was evidently completely lost on both the French and the Americans." A fascinating, if not shocking record of the last exhibition to feature live displays of colonized people and architectural replicas. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        66 Pieces of Original Art for "The Talk of the Town" Section of The New Yorker

      66 original pieces of art for the New Yorker. Pen and ink on artists board. Unsigned. Each is roughly 12" x 6.25". The vast majority have a The New Yorker Editorial Department slip attached with handwritten advice (mostly of the "Rush!! Must have Proof Final Today" variety). A very few have partial slips or the slips detached. Undated but from the subjects and some of the cultural context, probably largely from the 1950s and 1960s. These spot drawings appeared as the primary illustration for each weekly version of The Talk of the Town. Subjects are diverse: grumpy policemen, harried mailmen, air, train, and bus travellers; bookstore browsers; George Washington in New York; a king and queen tossing coins to a crowd; LBJ; an old school main frame computer; a man turning a corner confronted by a truncheon bearing "JD" (juvenile delinquent); a ghost picketing a cemetery; real estate shoppers; a take on New York City seceding from the state of New York; a scientist doing a test on mice; an astronaut in a space capsule; a couple watching a television with someone arguing for "peace"; musical notes picketing to save Carnagie Hall; Richard Nixon on television; various animals: birds, horses, porcupines, frogs, polar bears, groundhogs, monkeys, squirrels, and much more. Soglow was an American cartoonist, probably best known for his long-running syndicated cartoon for King Features, "The Little King" which first appeared in The New Yorker in 1931. His pen and ink drawings, usually uncaptioned, were deceptively simple and in many ways they set the standard for "spot art" in the magazine. Soglow drew a significant number of the spot drawings that appeared in The Talk of the Town for as long as he was at the magazine, for well over a quarter century. They are still being used today. This collection represents a significant amount of his output for the Talk pieces. .
